I Can Kill Anyone With My Cuteness, Jokes Little Things 2 Actress Priyanka Arya

Hails from Noida, Priyanka Arya has always dreamt of dazzling on screen as an actor. Interestingly, she has been a part of big budget films, web series and been the face of 50+ ads so far. The actress, who has earlier studied film making and interned with a reputed production house for 8 months, went on to do small stints in films like Sui Dhaaga: Made In India, Munna Michael to name a few.

Talking about becoming an actor, Priyanka says, “It was always there on my mind but I was hesitant to speak about it. I feel I have a different body type unlike those stereotypical actresses but I am like an imperfect package. She jokingly added, I can kill anyone with my cuteness.

Reminiscing her childhood, she reveals, “I have always been a day dreamer. As a kid, when i saw Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, i wanted to play Sana Saeed’s role, who played the daughter of Shah Rukh Khan and Rani Mukerji. That was actually a seeding thought to become an actor someday.”

Priyanka remembers the time when she started, “I participated in a contest for Big Bazaar and posed with the cut out of Shikhar Dhawan. Few days later while sitting in HT office, I got to know that I was chosen under top 16.”

“Once I was sitting at a cafe with a friend and someone was staring at me continuously and to my surprise he turned out to be a casting director who cast me for a CCD wall print ad. During my academics in Economics, I realised that it wasn’t my cup of tea,” she adds.

Go on… “While I was in Mumbai, one day a friend told me about an audition for a daily soap. Surprisingly, I never knew that a place like Aram Nagar existed in Mumbai known for auditions. Around that time, I got an opportunity to pen a show titled Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya for which I even got writing credits. Later, I shot an ad for Airtel directed by Ram Madhwani who further recommended me for a film called Call For Fun. However, the film didn’t work but i was noticed. I did What the Folks and through which i got Little Things 2. Later, i did small roles in Sui Dhaaga, Munna Micheal and I am currently shooting a big Punjabi film. I realised that from every small role I did led me to a bigger role.”

Spilling the beans on her upcoming projects, Priyanka says, “I have signed a contract with an OTT platform for a web series and also in talks for a feature film under a big banner.”
